One urban planner told me, "I just returned from the Tenderloin (a section of San Francisco). It's worse than slums of India, Haiti, Africa!"
What the hell is a dignity camp?I went there a month ago for a weekend. I walked around a lot, explored a lot. The SS Jeremiah Obrien is a fun museum ship to explore. The city is pretty nice but there are parts of it that are very trashy. Santa cruz had dignity camps set up there.
I bet the person who owns that home in the background isn't too thrilled about the dignity camp in their backyard. Good luck selling that place.an area zoned by any city where homeless can live
I took this photo from a bus that was driving through downtown santa cruz
The rats are enjoying the squalor. Not just in SF but also down in Los Angeles...which is why there is now a Typhus outbreak in the State.It was a hellhole when we left 20 years ago. I can only imagine what it's like now. One thing that sticks out, all the rats running wild in a vacant lot near a bus stop. Huge rats.
I don't think that is a home. With all the chainlink fence and open space it looks like more of a city park area.
